Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
What is the symptom that is bothering her the most?
Is it the feeling in her head?
Can you please elaborate more on the 'whooshing' feeling that you are having in the head.
As per my original question I can only say that she was scared and actually said at one point "I don't want to be a cabbage". The way she was explaining it I got the impression that it was the feeling that you get when you get up too quick and go dizzy and things go fuzzy and numb in your head. I can't say any more because swhe didn't say anything else and she is asleep now.
Has she ever had these symptoms in the past prior to these episodes?
Does she have any other medical problems?
Is she on any medications for anything currently?
No and no
Only Ibuprofen occasionally for the neck pain
Has she recently been seen by a doctor or had any blood tests or any other tests?
No the last time she went to the doctor was probably two years ago for the flu jab
She certainly does need to be seen for these symptoms and at least have a routine blood workup and examination done.
Causes in the brain and the nerves like you mentioned need to be ruled out.
It could be related to her neck problem that she has been having.
She may require a referral to a neurologist.
She may require a CT scan or MRI of her brain just to be on the safe side.
In the vast majority of cases this is not something serious.
Are you following me?
Anything else that you would like to add or ask?
If you can't suggest anything else, the I suppose that is it, although your systems has just taken some more money saying that you can help further?
Please do not accept that
Its just an automated message
I already did accept it?
You did not do it
because I would have known it
Or even if you did, you are not charged.
Anymore questions that you would like to ask?
Okay so is there anything else to recommend?
No, the bot***** *****ne is that she requires further evaluation by testing like CT or MRI and blood tests and clinical examination. It seems UNLIKELY to be anything serious but to be on the safe side and considering her age I would still like that she should be investigated further, also considering that she has not been examined and worked up in a long period of time.
Thank you for your advice.
